Hi Guys,

sorry, there was and is still a problem with my English copy of the game, which is broken. The plan was, to present you, like for the German version, simply a file to paste in the main directory. But anyway, you can use the already released mod for the German version. It’s not so easy like the first plan, but anyway it is not complicated.

Preparation:

1. Go to this German TT site and download the German mod pack (scroll down): http://www.wisim-welt.de/filebase/index.php/Entry/1215-Schiene-und-Strasse-3DTT-DE-Grafik-Mod/
2. Download on the same site the modding tools (scroll down): http://www.wisim-welt.de/filebase/index.php/Entry/1216-Modding-Tools/
3. Download the patch v1.1 for English version at gamefront or for the German version here:
http://www.gamefront.com/files/ttt11+patch+ukzip/;905499;/fileinfo.html
http://www.4players.de/4players.php/download_start/Downloads/Download/3582.html

If you have the German version you can simply use the pack from the German page. Use the instructions there: Make a copy of the original files (and leave the copy in the DATA Folder) and put the ones from the download pack in it. That’s it, basically.

If you have the English version TRY FIRST TO PROCEED IT LIKE FOR THE GERMAN VERSION, if this is not working follow these instructions below:

1. Install game and patch.
2. Go to the install directory of the game and open the DATA folder, where you can find the database files with the ending .wdb in it.
3. Take the little tool “WDBEntpacker3.exe” (it’s an extractor) from the “Tools” pack you downloaded for the preparation and place this tool in the DATA folder.
4. Make a copy of the original data.wdb and sus11.wdb files (just rename like dataori.wdb) and leave these copies in that folder (otherwise you will get “missing database error”)
5. Execute the WDBEntpacker.exe there and extract the original data.wdb and sus11.wdb.
6. Now you have two now folder in the DATA folder named DATA_WDB and SUS11_WDB. Go in this folder and you will find a lot of interesting stuff. This is the main database and in general that’s the right place for mod this game.

So far, so fine. But nothing is modded until now. You have to go on:

7. Now have a look at the German mod pack you downloaded from the German page. Extract its content to a separate folder you like. You see now the 2 modded wdb files for the German version: data.wdb and sus11.wdb.
8. Put again the “WDBEntpacker.exe” in this folder and extract both wdb. You now get again two folder named DATA_WDB and SUS11_WDB. Now you can copy all the stuff you need from the German extracted Data files to the ones you extracted for your English version.
9. So copy the Folders GFX, GFX_HI, VEHICLES and RANDOMMAP.SDSC from the DATA_WDB of the mod pack you downloaded and extracted in a separate folder and paste them to the DATA_WDB you extracted from the original wdb in you install directory. Of course overwrite the old files there.
10.Do the same with the file “BG_4_3.bmp” from the extracted SUS11_WDB. You just need it for the loading screen. That’s all here.

Now you have moved the modded files from the German mod pack to your English directory on your computer. Great! But it’s not done. Now you have to repack the extracted DATA_WDB and SUS_11 WDB in you installation directory to get the changes in your game. Go on with:

11. Go again to the modding tools pack you downloaded and find the RepMAker.zip. There are two files in it: RepMAker.exe and data.rif (it’s the check file). You need both files. Copy and paste both in each folder you want to pack. So place both files in the DATA_WDB folder and the SUS11_WDB folder.
12. Execute the RepMaker .exe in the DATA_WDB fiolder first. The Progrtam will create a new data.wdb in it. This should work without errors. Is there an error message you have to note it. Then open the data.rif check file with windows text editor or notepad and find the line, which is mentioned in the error message. Delete this line and save. This should solve the problem.
13. Now copy and paste the new packed data.wdb from the DATA_WDB Folder to the DATA Folder. Overwrite the existing data.wdb.
14. Now do the same witg the sus11.wdb. But befor you can repack it you have to edit the data.rif. Again!: Both files, the RepMaker.exe and the data.rif must be in the SUS11_WDB. Open the data.rif in the SUS11_WDB folder with the the text editor. Delete all and add the lines:

; 3DTT REPOSITORY FILE
; 2001-10-01
;
ui(*.bmp;*.kkd;*.fnt;*.sav)
buildings(*.bif;*.msh2;*.mas;*.amo;*.bmp)
vehicles(*.vif;*.msh2;*.mas;*.amo)
newspaper(*.ini;*.bmp)
*addonuk.lgd
*english.lgd
*names_uk.txt
*citiesuk.txt

15. Now you can repack the sus11.wdb, which will appear in the SUS11_WDB folder and copy and paste it to the DATA folder. Of course overwrite the existing file.
16. Phu…this should do it. Open the game and check the changes. Of course you have to set graphic settings to highest. Also keep in mind that you can change all graphics and the resolution you want in the TTT.ini in the main directory. Open it with the text editor. For example it looks like the following for 1920x1080:

ResX=1920
ResY=1080
Bpp=32

Or....somebody could try to just copy and paste the german mod files in the enlish version by keeping a backup of the original files in the folder. Maybe the game will work wihtout problems anyway. I cant check...this would be the easier way. Just try and tell here.

Hey don_quijote

Thanks for this awesome mod, I didn`t knew there are still people out there care/play Trains and Trucks. I found my CD a few days ago and installed it, and I still love this game. I wondered if there are any modifications or patches for this game and well, I found this page.

I`m going to install the graphical mod, I`m pretty excited about it, but I think the link is down. Well I cant find a link to download the file.

Thanks for still working on a fantastic game like this with its sad history.

greetings :wink:


edit: aha, gerade rausgefunden das du der deutschen Sprache mächtig bist,^^ naja ich werde versuchen mich für die anderen Forumsbesuchern trotzdem auf Englisch auszudrücken.

Wie gesagt, ich glaube das der Downloadlink nicht funktioniert bzw der beitrag gelöscht wurde.

Hi Monkey,

ja, wie ich gesehen habe, sind die Files nicht down, sondern durch eine Umstrukturierung des Forums verschoben worden. Ich habe die Links oben aktualisiert und du solltest jatzt zum Download gelangen. Hach ja...ist bis heute ein geiles Spiel. Hast du die Train Fever zugelegt? Verblüffend wie ähnlich die Spielmechanik zu SuS ist. Das zeigt wie dieses Spiel eiegntlich seiner Zeit vorraus war...


Hi guys,

i updated the links overhead. Should now work fine again ;)

Danke für die Aktualisierung ;)

Mir ist Train Fever erst vor kurzem ins Auge gesprungen und ich muss sagen das sieht schon sehr klasse aus und ähnelt schon stark an Sus - und das finde ich richtig gut! Ich denke das wird einen Kauf Wert sein. -> Vorallem da das SPiel sehr Modfreundlich sein soll, ich erhoffe mir da gute und interessante Erweiterungen aus der Community.

So etwas hat SuS leider gefehlt (der Quellcode war/ist verschlüsselt?), ich habe mir oft überlegt, wie man das Spiel hätte erweitern können, besonders von Zweispurigen Straßen hatte ich oft Visionen^^. Reale Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzungen, Maut, Steigende Unterhaltskosten im Alter und natürlich viel mehr verschiedene Fahrzeuge. Bei so einer Vorstellung bekomme ich echt Euphorie.


Noch etwas anderes, - es gibt doch einen Schienenbus, dieser kann aber keine Passagiere befördern, da dem Model wohl die Berechtigung für den Transport fehlt (also schlicht vergessen diesem Zugmodel den Transport von Passagieren einzutragen), da gibt es auch keine Lösung, oder?

edit:
Aha, habe hier etwas gefunden - https://sites.google.com/a/3dtt.co.cc/3dtt/home/downloads#TOC-3DTT-Addon - Ich würde auch gerne die Doppelstockwagen und andere Fahrzeuge (Anhänger...) mit in mein Spiel aufnehmen. In welche "data" Datei muss ich diese denn jetzt einfügen?

PS: Der Mod sieht echt Klasse aus! So macht das Spiel wieder etwas neues her :)

Hi Monkey,

i will return to english, due to our readers, who dont understand german ;)

Man...if you like SuS you will love Train Fever. Buy it, instantly ;) It feels like the unofficial sequel. Yes, the source code was unaccesable even for programmers here. But TF is different, there are A LOT of mods just some days after release. Check it here: http://www.train-fever.net/ I think the next month there will come a lot! A big modding community is there amd they will grow.

All the addons from this link you posted should be included in my mod. The new coaches are available from the late 1980 and mid 90s. ;)

hi guys, sorry its been a while since i was here. The Mod is finished for me. That means, of course it wasnt possible for me to recreate every texture but hundrets are replaced (see some screenshots here http://www.wisim-welt.de/index.php/Thre ... ot-Thread/ or here viewtopic.php?f=28&t=64309&start=20). This mod is just a graphical texture replacement mod and i also provide some tools from the original developers, like the vehicle editor.
